A Just Magnolia card and my new look blog

>> Monday, 13 July 2009

What do you think of my new look?  My ‘old’ blog was looking very dull compared to everyone elses in blogland so I spent Saturday evening downloading this new template (link at the bottom of the blog) and reloading all my widgets.  I’m really pleased with it but I just need to find out how to amend the horizontal menu bar under the header.

We had a lovely weekend .  The weather yesterday was lovely (not what they forecast) so we went for a lovely walk with my parents, fed the ducks and enjoyed a huge ice cream. 

This card is for my mum (from Thomas).  I’ve used Mina’s fabulous sketch for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge.  There are a few new stash bits  on this card; flower soft and dew drops both of which I love and will be using a lot more of in the future.

JM2 Card Recipe:

JM3Stamps: Magnolia, Papermania sentiment

Colouring medium: Distress inks (glitter pen on her wings)

Paper: Anna Griffin and Imaginisce (I think!!)

The Look is gorgeous. I only just re did mine as well, lots of codes and fiddles but don't you just feel so much better with the end result?

The card is stunning! I love how you have used this stamp and made it look so pretty and girlie Sharon, just gorgeous, xx.
